What people are saying about Carnival

Here are some testimonials from people who have played.

Carnival has an excellent combination of great puzzles, and silly humor, in the best of ways. In addition to the puzzles, some of which are constructed exactly in the way I like, the game also includes a few easter eggs, from the type that is surprisingly satisfying to discover, with one of them being one of my proudest moments in a while!

Questions about Carnival

What's an Online Escape Game?
An online escape game is a puzzle game in the style of a point-and-click adventure. Like a live escape room it features a variety of puzzles, ranging in style and difficulty. You and your friends play together in the same virtual room.
Can I play solo?
Yes, there's no need for a team mate, though some puzzles work better with multiple players cooperating. More heads definitely help, since the start of the game is fairly non-linear. Don't be afraid to use the hints; I don't want you to be frustrated.
Can we play at different locations / remotely?
Your teammates can be located anywhere in the world. You'll all access the same game, sharing a virtual world. You should connect additionally on a group call outside the program -- a link to Jitsi, which requires no extra software, is provided at the start.
What if I need a hint?
There's an in-game progressive hint system -- only little details are revealed each time you ask for a hint.
System Requirements
The game works with recent versions of Firefox and Chrome. On a tablet, Chrome works better. The interface is not suitable for a phone. A recent Edge should also work.
Is there a time limit?
No. You can take as long as you'd like to complete the game, even come back to it later -- keep the URL you get with your purchase. For technical reasons, the game may be deleted after 15 days. I'll gladly give you a new link should something come up and you don't get to the game in that time.
Can children play the game?
Aside from some cheeky humour, the game should be thematically okay for children. The age recommendation of 16+ is primarily due to the difficulty of some puzzles.
How hard are the puzzles?
Carnival Players so far indicate this is a medium level game, when compared to the escape rooms they've played. Don't worry; I strive to make all puzzles fair, but also have a built-in hint system, just in case. Prototype is a slightly harder game.
